KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has called an all-party meeting to be held at his office at 10:30 am today.

The PM has called the all-party meeting to find a negotiated settlement of all the contemporary, as well as constitutional issues, according to Prime Minister’s Press Adviser Pramod Dahal.

The ruling parties, the main opposition Nepali Congress and the agitating Madhesh-based parties have been invited to discuss the demands put forth by various agitating parties and groups on matters relating to the new constitution, Dahal said.

The Sanghiya Gathabandhan (Federal Alliance), which has been spearheading the agitation against the constitution, had, a few days ago, written to the PM a 26-point letter urging him to meet conditions to prepare an environment for talks.

The Gathabandhan also demanded withdrawal of false charges against agitators and formation of a probe committee to investigate the allegations of human rights violation during the protests.

BHIMDUTTANAGAR — Locals who were protesting against the rape and murder of Nirmala Panta of Kanchanpur’s Bhimdatta Municipality, have enforced shutdown in Bhimduttanagar Bazaar on Tuesday, protesting police’s failure to reveal facts behind the murder of 13-year-old girl and parading wrong suspect on Monday.

The District Police Office, organising a press conference on Monday,had made public Dilip Singh Bista (41), of Baghphanta, Bhimdatta Municipality-19 as Nirmala’s murderer.

Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.

Transportation has also been halted.

Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.

Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.

The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.

Nirmala was found murdered in a sugarcane field on July 27, a day after she had gone to her friend’s home to get a notebook.
